Dr: Frederick V. Coville
of Washington, D. C, awarded the George Robert White
Medal of Honor
George R. White Medal Award
Dr. Frederick V. Coville of the Department of Agriculture
in Washington, awarded the George Robert White Medal of
Honor, has had a long and busy life. As long ago as 1899 he
went to Alaska with the Harriman expedition and identified
more than 1,000 plants. Since then he has done much valuable
work in many parts of the country, as far removed as Arizona
and New Jersey. Probably his most striking accomplishment
has been his successful taming of the wild blueberries which
have grown for years on the pine barrens in New Jersey. By
selection and cross breeding he has greatly improved the size
and yield' of these blueberries, and has proved that they can
be successfully cultivated in gardens. Dr. Coville found that
a minute fungus, invisible except with a compound microscope,
attaches itself to the roots of a healthy blueberry plant. This
fungus thrives in an acid soil, which is an important point to
be remembered. Working along this line Dr. Coville added
much to the knowledge necessary for the successful cultivation
of Rhododendrons, Mountain Laurel, Trailing Arbutus and
various other plants wliich will not thrive in an alkaline soil.
While experimenting with the blueberry, Dr. Coville demon-
strated the effect of cold in stimulating the growth of plants.
He allowed part of a blueberry bush to grow inside of a green-
house and part outside. He deduced from this experiment that
blueberries must have freezing temperatures, and later found
that the same fact applied to cranberries and various other
Many of his experiments involving years of research form
dramatic chapters in the history of botany, but his work has
gone even farther afield, for in the West he developed a
method of grazing control in the national forests which has
permitted their economic utilization, yielding at the same
time as high as $2,000,000 a year to the government for
Dr. Coville has written scores of scientific papers dating
back to the time 40 years ago when he made his first botanical
survey of Death Valley. He is a co-author of "Standardized
Plant Names" and acting director of. the national arboretum
in Washington, for which the government has cleared 190
acres at Mt. Hamilton.
The Dawson Medal Award
William Henry Judd, who succeeded Jackson Dawson as
propagator at the Arnold Arboretum in 1916, was awarded
the Jackson Dawson Memorial Medal by vote of the trustees
for 1931. Mr. Judd was born on July 14, 1888, at Preston
Brook in the county of Cheshire, England, on an estate of
which his father was superintendent. Gardening had been the
family profession for several generations. After gaining his
education in the public schools of England, Mr. Judd started
his training as gardener in 1903 at Steventon Manor, county
of Hampshire. During the next seven years he had a varied
experience, first being employed on an estate in Surrey where
he worked in the vegetable garden and later spending three
years at Wigmore Park, Surrey.
With this background, Mr. Judd was well qualified to enter
Kew Gardens, which he did in 1910. His training there was
finished in 1913, and from Kew he came directly to the Arnold
Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Mass., to take the position of
assistant to Jackson Dawson, then chief propagator.
It was during the following years that Ernest H. Wilson,
the late keeper of the Arnold Arboretum, made his collecting
trips to Korea and Formosa. Mr. Judd was left to shoulder
the responsibility of raising and distributing all of Wilson's
collections from these two trips. It was through his skillful
work that the Taiwania and Spiraea trichocarpa, the latter a
popular shrub in northern gardens today, were first raised
and distributed. In hybridization, Mr. Judd has also made
valuable contributions to the horticultural world, particularly
in his hybrids of the Kurume Azaleas crossed with Rhododen-
dron scabrum and B. maxwelli. These hybrids are rapidly
becoming better known to florists.
Mr. Judd has been active for many years in various horti-
cultural organizations. He was president of the Gardeners'
and Florists' Club of Boston during 1920 and 1921. At present
he holds the positions of secretary of the Association of Kew
Gardeners in America, chairman of the plant and flower judges
of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, of which organiza-
tion he is also a life member, and he holds membership in the
Horticultural Club of Boston and the New England Botanical
Thomas Roland Medal Award
Mr. J. D. Eisele, who was awarded the Thomas Roland Medal
in 1931, has long been in the front rank of commercial horti-
culturists in America. He was born in Philadelphia, Pa., in
1859 and at the early age of 14 was apprenticed to a Phila-
delphia grower of flowering and decorative plants. He served
three years and then in 1876 became connected with Henry A.
Dreer in the nurseries at Riverton, N. J.
Mr. Eisele's connection with the house of Dreer has remained
unbroken ever since that date, making a record not easily
duplicated. In the course of time he became vice-president of
the corporation and manager of the nurseries. When Mr.
Dreer died, he became president and has continued in that
capacity ever since.
Mr. Eisele has been especially interested in the introduction
of new plants since the early days of his apprenticeship. This
interest has caused him to make annual trips to the horti-
cultural centers of Great Britain and the continent for many
years. Not a few of the plants now to be found in gardens
throughout the country were first introduced as results of
Mr. Eisele's knowledge of plant material and his ability to
predict the future of new Varieties. He made connections
abroad with the growers and collectors of many new and rare
subjects, which have gradually been brought into cultivation
in this country. Also, a number of important novelties have
been grown and developed under his personal supervision.
Few men have done more to enrich the gardens of America.
In addition, Mr. Eisele has observed the best traditions of
his craft, and by wise direction and intelligent leadership has
done much to promote the advancement of horticulture in the
United States. He was a personal friend of Mr. Roland's, in
whose honor this medal was first struck, and the committee
could think of no man in this country upon whom this award
could be more fittingly bestowed.

Mrs. Judith Eleanor
of Brookline, Mass.,
a Gold Medal
Miss Isabella Preston
of Ottawa, Canada,
a Gold Medal
Award to Miss Preston
Miss Isabella Preston of the Experimental Farm, Ottawa,
Canada, awarded the Society's large gold medal from the
William N. Craig fund in 1931, has occupied the position of
specialist in ornamental gardening in the horticultural divi-
sion at Ottawa for nine years and has done much valuable
work in originating new plants. Her breeding of new varieties
of Lilies has attracted wide attention. Before going to Ottawa,
she had originated the George C. Creelman Lily, and another
of her hybrids, raised at Ottawa, has been named Lilium dav-
mottiae (L. davidi x L. willmottiae). This Lily has created
very favorable comment, and in England has received an award
from the Royal Horticultural Society (July 14, 1931). Many
other Lily seedlings, as a result of her work, are being tested.
Miss Preston has published a book called "Garden Lilies,"
which has proved popular. The medal was awarded to her
specifically for her work with Lilies according to the terms of
the Craig fund.
A new hybrid species of Lilac has been named Syringa
prestoniae for Miss Preston. By crossing the Chinese Lilac
(S. villosa) with the Nodding Lilac (S. reflexa), the flower
clusters of which have a pendulous habit, she obtained a large
number of varieties, some of which have the pendulous habit
of 8. reflexa but with much larger panicles of flowers, while
others have enormous panicles with the upright habit.
Other new plants originated by Miss Preston are many
charming varieties of ornamental red-flowered and red-leaved
Crab apples and varieties of the Siberian Iris. By crossing an
early Russian Columbine with the native Columbine (Aqui^
legia canadensis), early varieties were obtained in a great
range of form and color. Miss Preston's work with Roses has
resulted in several fine new varieties, and a large number are
yet to bloom.
Award to Mrs. Low
The Massachusetts Horticultural Society, through its medal
committee and by vote of the Trustees, awarded the Society's
gold medal in 1931 to Mrs. Edward Gilchrist Low (Eleanor
Motley) of Brookline, Mass., for her great achievement in
founding the Lowthorpe School of Landscape Architecture for
Women at Groton, Mass., and in recognition of a long life
devoted to the advancement of horticulture. Mrs. Low is a
great granddaughter of Benjamin Bussey, once active in the
affairs of the Society.
The Lowthorpe School of Landscape Architecture for
Women was started in 1901. It has had a successful career and
in recent years has become widely known because of its high
standing and the excellent work done by its graduates. The
school now has 34 students and a faculty of ten. During the
past year it has received the hearty endorsement of the Garden
Glub of America.

Stone Memorial Garden Prize
In 1930 Mrs. Robert Stone began offering a prize of $100 in
memory of the late Galen L. Stone as an incentive to the
making of backyard gardens in the poorer sections of the city
in which Mr. Stone took a keen interest. The secretary of the
Society was asked to ascertain the best way in which to use
this award. He finally decided that it could be used to best
advantage in a section of the South End which is occupied by
colored people but which is very close. to Horticultural Hall.
In years past the back alleys in this section have, been in-
conceivably filthy, while the yards bordering upon them have
been filled with ashes and rubbish of all sorts, often to a depth
of several feet. In one instance, at least, a long alley running
between scores of back yards had no opening large enough
for a truck or wagon to enter. Tenants said that there had
been no regular collection of garbage for two years and the
odor was so bad that the windows were kept closed.
It was to be expected that the death rate in this section was
high ; that from tuberculosis was higher than in any other
part of Boston. The Boston Tuberculosis Association had been

attempting for several years to improve conditions in this
section and was receiving the support of the Better Homes

to clean up their yards and make them as attractive as pos-
sible. There had been no proper incentive, however, in the way
of money prizes until the amount offered by Mrs. Stone be-

in the Autumn and selected those which were deemed most
worthy of recognition. Later an out-of-door meeting was
held, with a band for music, and the presentation of the prizes
made. This procedure was repeated last year with a marked
increase of interest and a remarkable change in the district
The Late Albert C- Burrage
The Society suffered a severe loss in June of 1931, when
Mr. Albert Cameron Burrage, the president, passed away sud-
denly at his Summer home in Manchester. Mr. Burrage had
been president since 1921, having held the office for a longer
period than any other president in the history of the Society.
When he became president, the Society had only about 900
members and when he died it had almost 7,000, the largest
number in its history and the largest of any similar organiza-
tion in this country. All the activities of the Society were
developed to a remarkable degree in his administration. He
was president when the Society acquired Horticulture and
did much to aid in the expansion of that publication. He gave
freely of his time and wealth in the development of the
exhibitions of the Society, his own exhibits being of a character
which won recognition throughout the world. He was largely
responsible for the great Orchid exhibition held in March,
1920. On that occasion his own exhibit occupied an entire
floor of one hall and was arranged to reproduce natural
In May, 1921, he put on an exhibition of wild flowers and
ferns which has never been equalled in this country. The
large hall became a mountain gorge, at one end of which a
waterfall tumbled and dashed over its rocky bed into a large
shady pool, from which a brook flowed under a rustic bridge
and on through the glade. Nearly 83,000 people saw this exhi-
bition — a figure never before approached by the Society.
In 1921 Mr. Burrage was given the George Robert White
Medal of Honor "in recognition of his conspicuous services to
horticulture by the establishment in Beverly of the greatest
collection of Orchids the new world has yet seen ; for his skill-
ful and energetic management of the Society and for his
labors to increase the love, protection, and cultivation of New
England wild flowers and ferns through his remarkable exhi-
bition of these plants."
Mr. Burrage had a prominent part in the great Orchid
show which was held in 1923 with the Massachusetts Horti-

cultural Society acting as host to the American Orchid
Society. Mr. Burrage filled the large hall with contributions
of such supreme merit and educational value that Gurney
Wilson of the Koyal Horticultural Society, who acted as one
of the judges, returned to England with a report which won
that society's gold medal for Mr. Burrage, the first time it
had ever been awarded for an American exhibit.
Mr. Burrage had an important part in making the Centen-
nial Exhibition of the Society in Mechanics Building in 1929
the tremendous success which it proved to be, with an attend-
ance of 117,000 persons. The Society's $1,000 gold cup and a
centennial gold medal were awarded to Mr. and Mrs. Burrage
for the display made by them at this exhibition.
During all these years Mr. Burrage had been building up
an unrivaled collection of Orchids and had established a
special greenhouse range for them in North Beverly under
the name of "Orchidvale." He exhibited Orchids at several
shows in New York, Washington and elsewhere. For several
years he was president of the American Orchid Society and
did much to improve the status of that organization.
He, of course, had many diversified interests, being con-
nected with many business enterprises. Before turning to
horticulture as a hobby he built up one of the finest private
collections of minerals to be found in America. In his later
years, however, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society was
very dear to his heart and received a large amount of his time
and attention, the results being seen in its greatly increased
membership and prosperity.
In 1930 he gave the Society the sum of $50,000, the income
of $30,000 to be used each year for the purchase of books and
pamphlets relating directly or indirectly to horticulture. He
provided that the income of the $20,000 remaining should be
used exclusively for the purchase of a gold vase to be awarded
by the trustees of the Society at a meeting in December of
each year to the most outstanding exhibit in any of the shows
of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society held during that
Two other funds bear his name. The Albert Cameron Bur-
rage Fund of $1,200 was given in 1920 for the purpose of
promoting the cranberry industry in Massachusetts. A fund
34 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
of $1,250 was established in 1929 for the purchase of a gold
medal to be awarded for a newly made porch overlooking a
Several important alterations in Horticultural Hall were
made during Mr. Burrage's administration, some of them
being paid for outright by him. These alterations have im-
proved both the offices and the exhibition halls. In his will,
Mr. Burrage bequeathed his library of about 2,000 books,
made up largely of Orchid literature, to the Society.
Mr. Burrage was 71 years of age at the time of his death
and a special committee, with Mr. William C. Endicott as
chairman, was immediately appointed to draw up suitable
resolutions expressing the Society's sense of loss and its sym-
pathy for the family of its late president.
Awards for Gardens
The Committee on G-ardens made its awards for 1931 at a
meeting on Friday, September 25, those present being Mrs.
Thayer, Mrs. Crosby, Mrs. Crowninshield and Mr. Hunne-
well. Mrs. Thayer was in the chair.
It was voted to award the Society's large gold medal from
the Hunnewell fund to Mr. and Mrs. John S. Ames for their
estate at North Easton, which is notable for its fine old trees,
its beautiful vistas, its splendid sweeping lawns and its mag-
nificent planting along the banks of a pond, Azaleas in par-
ticular having been used with unusual skill and jn great
variety. The largest plantings are of Ghent hybrid Azaleas,
made about 40 years ago. Other kinds along the waterfront are
Azalea japonica, A. vaseyi and A. calendulacea. A. kaempferi
has been used freely in the woods.
The Ames' estate consists of about 200 acres, including a
pond and a large amount of woodland. In making this award
attention was also called to the greenhouses on the estate, and
Mr.. Ames' conspicuous success with Kurume Azaleas grown
under glass. Mr. Ames was the first to exhibit these Azaleas
in the eastern states, they having been sent to him direct from
the city of Kurume in Japan by the late Dr. E. H. Wilson in
1917. Mr. Ames has given these Kurumes loving care ever
since that time and has repeatedly shown them at exhibitions
of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, thereby greatly
increasing the interest in these plants throughout the country.
The Ames place was originally laid out by Mr. Ames'
father in 1859, the landscape architect being Col. Thomas Lee,
at that time a prominent man in his profession. It has always
been cared for with great skill but many important changes
have been made in recent years, among them the removal of a
number of statues which were formerly considered highly
ornamental. Many of the changes were brought about under
the guidance of the late Prof. Charles S. Sargent, who was
much interested in the place. The present lovely appearance
of the estate is said by Mr. Ames to be due largely to the
advice received from Professor Sargent.
The other awards were as follows :
A silver medal to Mrs. J. R. McGinley at Smith's Point,
Manchester. Mrs. McGinley 's garden is situated on a ledge
high above the sea. She has taken advantage of the natural
features in a most successful way, borders and beds being
36 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
made among the rocks in such a way that there is a constant
succession of bloom throughout the Summer. The committee
was particularly impressed with the perfection of coloring in
this garden and with the individual excellence of the flowers,
which are largely annuals.
A silver medal to Mr. and Mrs. Geoffrey G. "Whitney of
Milton for the garden at their Summer home in Woods Hole.
There is really a series of gardens on the Whitney place — one
of them, a Rose garden, is devoted largely to yellow Roses.
In addition, there is a large picking garden where Del-
phiniums of unusual excellence are grown in great numbers.
The whole place has great charm and contains much interest-
ing plant material, some of it not common. Several of the
beds, for example, are edged with Teucrium, which gives the
effect of very dwarf Box and offers a suggestion which might
well be adopted by other garden makers. Mrs. Whitney has a
special fondness for herbs which she grows in great numbers,
some of them being arranged in a delightful border.
A garden certificate to Mr. Charles D. Armstrong at
Marston's Mill, North Center ville, which is notable for the
great number of very large Box specimens which it contains
and for the unusually well grown conifers. For many years
Mr. Armstrong made a point of collecting all the varieties of
Box which he could find and of developing specimen plants.
It is doubtful if any other garden in New England can show
as large a collection of specimen Boxwoods.
A garden certificate to Mr. Archibald Blanchard of Nahant
for a garden which is laid out in excellent taste and where a
feature is made of Hoses. This is not a large garden, but is
exceedingly well cared for and perfectly adapted to the sea-
side situation which it occupies.
A garden certificate to Mr. and Mrs. Charles A. Proctor of
Swampscott for the original and charming way in which they
have used annuals. Their massing of color and their choice of
plants makes that part of the garden devoted to annuals
Mrs. Crosby reported on the garden of Frederick Austin of
Forest Street, Manchester. Austin is employed as a night
watchman for Mr. Philip Dexter and has made his garden in
his spare time. The committee instructed the Secretary to write
a letter of commendation.

The Oldest Garden Club
Late in 1931 the Trustees of the Massachusetts Horticultural
Society awarded a silver medal to the Cambridge Plant Club
of Cambridge, Mass., in recognition of the fact that it is the
oldest garden club in America. Much has been written about
the origin of the garden club movement but there is no record
of any such organization having been formed previous to 1889,
which was the year in which the Cambridge Plant Club came
into existence. This club has carried on its various activities
with unabated enthusiasm through all the subsequent years
and is functioning actively at the present time. It is a member
of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts and exhibited
at the Centennial Exhibition of the Massachusetts Horticul-
tural Society. Several members of the original group are still
taking part in the work of the club.
This organization was considered a novelty when it was
formed and a number of similar clubs were started in neigh-
boring cities soon after. They, however, lasted' for only a short
time. The first meeting of the Cambridge Plant Club was held
on January 20, 1889, at the home of Mrs, John Hayes, with
about 20 persons present. The purpose of the club was stated
to be the exchange of experiences and a discussion of the best
methods of cultivating house and garden plants. The name of
the club was suggested by Mrs. Hayes. In 1929 the club cele-
brated its fortieth anniversary with several of the original
The next oldest garden club appears to be one organized at
Athens, Ga., in 1892, at the home of Dr. E. C. Newton. It was
christened The Ladies Garden Club of Athens and is still active.

i— ^ a»
The Annual Meeting, 1932
The annual meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural
Society was held at Horticultural Hall on Monday, May 2,
with the President, Mr. Edwin S. Webster, in the chair. The
Secretary read the call for the meeting and the minutes of the
previous meeting, after which the President announced that
the polls were open and that Mr. Paul Frese, Mrs. Florence
Mayo and Miss Phyllis Allen had been appointed tellers.
The President then read his annual address as follows :
Address of the President
A year ago I stood at this table in the absence of the then
President, Mr. Albert C. Burrage, who was abroad, and read a
short message from him to the Society. I did not dream that a
year from that time I should be standing here as Mr. Burrage's
successor. The passing of Mr. Burrage was a severe loss to the
Society. He served as President for a longer time than any of
his predecessors and no man in the entire history of the Society
did more to advance its interests. I suggest, therefore, that the
members of the Society here present stand for a moment in
silent tribute to the memory of Mr. Burrage. (Those present
then arose and remained standing a short time. )
This is the second time that a combined annual and inaugural
meeting of the Society has been held. The date was changed
from the first of November, with the hope of increasing both
the attendance and interest of the members, but more particu-
larly to permit the appointment of the committees so that they
would continue in office from a date immediately following the
Spring show until after the next Spring show. This arrange-
ment makes it possible for the committee which starts prepara-
tions for the Spring show to carry it through to its final con-
clusion. This has been a radical change but is working out, I
feel, to the advantage of the Society.
It is pleasant to find that the Society itself has been affected
only slightly by the current depression. Additions to member-
ship have been larger than losses from that source. At the
beginning of May, 1931, the Society had 6,578 members. At the
beginning of May this year it had 7,308 members, an increase of
730. This is the active, paid-up membership and does not in-
clude some scores of members who have become delinquent.
72 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Under the by-laws a member is carried for a year after he
ceases paying dues, unless he resigns. A member is not con-
sidered active when he becomes three months or more behind in
his dues. The present membership is by far the largest in the
history of the Society, and twice that of any similar organiza-
tion in the country. Membership dues are, of course, very low.
I am not sure that the Society would not gain by increasing
the dues for the first year to $3.00, keeping them at $2.00 a
The Library has shown a healthy growth, as the report of
the Chairman of the Library Committee, Mr. Kidder, will
show. Ten years ago only one person was employed in the
Library and the room was empty most of the time. Now three
persons are on duty, and constant use is being made of the
One particular advantage comes from holding the Spring
flower show in this building. It provides the means of intro-
ducing many new persons to the Library and to the Society
itself. The gain in membership is always large when a show is
held here. This year, for the first time, the Library was kept
open each evening during the progress of the show and with
marked success. The number of visitors was very large and the
number of books loaned increased to a total of 680 for the
month, as compared with 442 in 1931, when the Spring show
was held elsewhere.
Every effort is being made to make the Library of value to
the members of the Society. Its usefulness is not confined to
them, however, for it is open to the public every week day, a
fact which apparently is not realized generally. This part of
the Society's work represents free service entirely. There is no
income from the Library and its growth and popularity in-
crease the cost of operation. Nevertheless, the officers of the
Society take particular pride in the Library and in its expan-
sion. It has been maintained almost from the beginning of the
Society's existence, more than 100 years ago, and is stirpassed
by no other Library of its kind in the world.
Most of the exhibitions also represent a gratuitous service
on the part of the Society. No charge is made at any of the
Summer or Autumn shows and a large amount of money is
spent for maintaining these shows at a high standard. This
would not be possible except for the profit yielded by the Spring
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 73
exhibition, for which a charge is made. This Spring show has
come to be a fixed event in the Society's operations and is gradu-
ally being placed on a practical business basis.
It was deemed wise to hold the show this year in Horticul-
tural Hall, the Trustees feeling that the attendance probably
would be rather less than usual on account of the general finan-
cial stringency. To the surprise of everyone, the hall was
crowded to capacity much of the time. In fact, it became neces-
sary on several occasions to close the doors, and many com-
plaints have been received from visitors who could not properly
view the exhibition.
I feel, with the other Trustees, that it is not fair to the public
to take money for a show which cannot be enjoyed in comfort.
The Board was unanimous in deciding at the close of this year's
show that larger quarters must be sought for Spring exhibi-
tions in the future. The Trustees, therefore, voted to hold the
exhibition of 1933 in a larger hall and demonstrated their
belief that outside quarters would be required in all subse-
quent years by voting to engage another assistant for the
Secretary. This assistant will be employed largely in arranging
and staging the exhibitions of the Society, particularly the
Spring exhibition, under the general direction of the Com-
mittee on Exhibitions. This is committing the Society to a new
policy but one which seems to have been justified by the con-
tinued growth in interest shown by the public in the Society's
exhibitions, an interest which runs parallel with the surprising
growth of the garden movement throughout the country. Mr.
Kelsey, in his report as Chairman of the Committee on Exhibi-
tions, will give you some of the details of the shows.
The Society has not entirely escaped the effects of business
conditions, having suffered slightly in its investments, although
not to a degree that interferes with its work. The receipts from
membership dues, amounting to $12,059.50 in 1931, are a help
in meeting the expenses of the Society, and together with the
profits of the Spring show, make possible the maintenance of
the Society's usual activities, in addition to the upkeep of the
building and the development of its Library.
Edwin S. "Webster, President.
74 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Report of the Secretary
As mentioned by your President, the Society sustained a
heavy loss the past year in the death of Mr. Albert C. Burrage,
for ten years its president. Mr. Edwin S. Webster, as Vice-
President, was elected to succeed Mr. Burrage and appointed
Messrs. Endicott, Kidder and Lyman to prepare resolutions
which were later submitted and adopted as follows :
Whereas Albert Cameron Burrage^ President of the Massachusetts
Horticultural Society, died at West Manchester, Massachusetts, June
28, 1931, be it therefore
Resolved, that the Trustees hereby express their deep sense of loss
in the death of Mr. Burrage and their appreciation of his pre-eminent
services to the Society. Under his administration its membership
increased from 800 to 6,000, his influence has extended its activities,
and a world wide reputation for its Library, its publications and its
exhibitions has been more firmly established. Mr. Burrage served as
President for a period of ten years, a longer time than any of his
predecessors. This Committee regrets that it is unable to present a
suitable Memoir at this time, but later an account of his horticultural
life will be written.
Resolved, that these Resolutions be spread on the records of the
Society, and that a copy thereof be sent to the family of Mr. Burrage.
Several important changes in the arrangement of the offices
inaugurated by Mr. Burrage were carried out early in the year.
The rearrangement has greatly improved the working quarters
for the Secretary's staff. Later in the year, when the announce-
ment was made that Mr. Burrage had bequeathed his horti-
cultural library of about 2,000 volumes to the Society, it became
evident that additional library space would be required. Ac-
cordingly, a new room of ample proportions was made on the
upper floor of the building, connecting with the present Library
by a stairway. It was necessary to install several long iron
girders to support the floor, which was afterwards cemented.
This, with the heavy tile walls, gives a fireproof room for the
storage of books. These Library alterations cost about $4,500,
this amount of money being made available by the profits of the
Spring show, although $5,000 was withdrawn from these profits
and added to the Exhibition Insurance Fund, which now totals
In July the Trustees elected Mr. Walter Hunnewell Vice-
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 75
President to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Webster as Presi-
dent. This left a vacancy in the Board, which was filled by the
election of Mr. Albert C. Burrage, Jr.
At a meeting in October, a special committee appointed to
report on land at the corner of Longwood Avenue and Brookline
Avenue being held by certain trustees and estates for the
Society, reported against buying the land and recommended
that the Society abandon the idea of erecting a new building on
that site. It was the feeling of the committee that the present
building will be adequate for many years, that its location is
very accessible, and that it meets the needs of the public. The
report was accepted and the recommendations adopted.
At the October meeting Mrs. Thayer, Chairman of the Com-
mittee on Gardens, made her report, recommending the follow-
ing awards : The Society's large gold medal from the H. H.
Hunnewell fund to Mr. and Mrs. John S. Ames for their estate
at North Easton; silver medals to Mrs. John R. McG-inley for
her garden at Smith's Point, Manchester, and to Mr. and Mrs.
Geoffrey G. Whitney for their garden at Woods Hole; and
garden certificates to Mr. Archibald Blanchard of Nahant,
Mr. Charles D. Armstrong of Marston's Mill, North Centerville,
and to Mr. and Mrs. Charles A. Proctor of Swampscott.
In reporting for the special Medal Committee, Mr. Oakes
Ames made the following recommendations :
That the George Robert White Medal of Honor be awarded
to Dr. Frederick V. Coville of Washington, the Jackson Dawson
Memorial Medal to William H. Judd of the Arnold Arboretum,
the Thomas Roland Medal to J. D. Eisele of Philadelphia, and
the Society's large gold medal from the William N. Craig Fund
to Miss Isabella Preston of Ottawa, Canada.
Later the Trustees voted a silver medal to the Cambridge
Plant Club as the oldest garden club in America. It was also
voted to award the Society's gold medal to Mrs. Eleanor Motley
Low, who founded the Lowthorpe School of Landscape Archi-
tecture for Women at Groton, and who has devoted a long life
to the advancement of horticulture.
At the last meeting of the year, a special committee recom-
mended the award of the Albert C. Burrage $1,000 gold vase
for 1931 to Bobbink & Atkins of Rutherford, N. J., for the
76 M VSSA(MIUSKTTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
great exliibit set up by this firm at the Spring exhibition in
1931. This recommendation was adopted.
The porch competition inaugurated by Mr. Burrage con-
tinues to attract attention, and the medal award for 1931 was
made to Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Goodridge of East Milton.
For the second year the Society opened its doors to the
University Extension Division of the State Department of
Education, which conducted two classes, one in landscape gar-
dening and one in the culture of house plants. The attendance
The loss by death in the year 1931 was heavy, a total of 76,
including 26 life members and 50 annual members.
As shown by the President's report, the Society has not
suffered any loss of membership but, on the contrary, has made
a steady gain. The proportion of life members to annual mem-
bers, however, continues smaller than it ought to be.
The rentals in 1931 brought in $5,626.39, a slightly smaller
amount than in 1930.
Horticultural Hall continues to be the meeting place of many
organizations, which are thus tied up with the Society's activi-
ties. They include :
Federation of Garden Clubs of Massachusetts
New England Wild Flower Preservation Society
Benevolent Fruit and Flower Mission
Boston Chapter of the National Association of Gardeners
Gardeners' and Florists' Club of Boston
New England Greenkeepers' Association
Boston Mycological Club
New England Dahlia Society
New England Gladiolus Society
New England Carnation Growers' Association
The Society has continued its pleasant and helpful relations
with outside organizations, especially the horticultural societies
of New York, Pennsylvania, Worcester, and the North Shore.
There has been the usual exchange of medals with the New York
and Pennsylvania societies.
The Secretary again desires to express his hearty apprecia-
tion of the unfailing support which has been given him by the
Trustees and members of the Massachusetts Horticultural
Edward I. Farrington, Secretary.

86 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Report of the Library Committee
An account of a year's work in the Library is both a state-
ment of events and a report of progress. The real test of a
year's success is the way in which the Library is used by the
membership of the Society at large. We therefore buy books
old and new, broaden our contacts, strengthen resources, or
improve equipment with the purpose of meeting the needs of
patrons more effectively.
An unusually large number of requests have come to the
Library from workers on important problems ; whether because
more people are doing serious work or because more of them
are turning to us is an interesting speculation. These readers
have been of varied types, amateurs, garden club officers, pro-
fessional horticulturists and landscape architects, book store
managers, authors, librarians. They are not limited in residence
to the neighborhood of Boston. Although the New England
states, New York and Pennsylvania provide most of our patron-
age we have regular correspondents and borrowers from Maine
to Alabama and California.
In addition to a large unrecorded use of books in the reading
room, 3,508 volumes were borrowed for use at home in 1931, and
nearly half these books went out by mail. It is often this oppor-
tunity to borrow books that attracts distant members into the
The number of other libraries and institutions with which
we have exchanged information has grown in two years from
16 to 48. The most significant of these contacts in 1931 was -an
invitation from the Library of Congress to be represented in
their "Project B, Increase of the Bibliographic Apparatus,"
generally known as their Union Catalogues. This is a record of
the location of books of interest to students, and is gradually
being developed to cover all fields of knowledge and all the
important libraries of the country.
Four hundred and forty-eight volumes were added to the
Library in 1931. The list includes a number of very important
works, such as :
Rariorum aliquot stirpium per Hispanias obseruatarum historia,
by Clusius, published in 1576.
Species plantarum, by Linnaeus, first edition, 1753.
The Herball, or generall historie of plantes, by Gerarde, first and
second editions, 1597 and 1633.
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 87
The Botanic garden, by Maund, published between 1825 and 1851,
a complete set, of an earlier and better impression than the one
we already had.
Gardens of colony and state, recently published by the Garden
Club of America.
Orchids of the north eastern United States photographed from
nature by Edwin Hale Lincoln, published 1931.
Mr. Burrage, our late President, bequeathed to the Society
his horticultural library. The books have not yet been given into
our care, but the catalogue shows that the collection is large and
of fine quality, and, as we would expect, is rich in orchid litera-
ture. It is one of the finest of such gifts with which our Library
has been honored, and will enrich our shelves considerably.
Two important Library projects have been carried on from
1930, the indexing of a selected group of magazines, and the
repair and preservation of bindings.
A new and long-needed shelf list of the Library has been
undertaken, and will give us an important permanent record.
Its most fundamental use is the taking of inventories, and for
this it has no substitute. It gives the Librarian almost equally
essential information about the make-up of the collection, and
has already been helpful to staff and readers as a bibliography.
We have had a new storage stack built to give space for
nearly 20,000 additional volumes. The reading room has been
provided with new lights and with new display racks for maga-
zines, and the charging desk and catalogue cases have been
rearranged to make a more effective working unit. A number
of readers have expressed their pleasure in the greater con-
venience and improved appearance of the room.
Nathaniel T. Kidder, Chairman.
Report of the Committee on Lectures and Publications
The Committee on Lectures and Publications has been con-
cerned particularly the past year with Horticulture, inasmuch
as all publications have been affected to a greater or lesser
degree by current business conditions. Fortunately, Horticul-
ture has not suffered as much as many other publications in
the same line or, for that matter, in the general field. The cir-
culation, indeed, has continued to increase. The number of
paid-up subscribers the first of January, 1931, was 20,549. This
number had grown to 22,245 at the beginning of this year and
has continued to increase, making the count for April 1 ? the
88 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
last available figures, 23,081. These figures include blanket
subscriptions from the Pennsylvania and New York societies,
which have not fallen behind, a fact which indicates their con-
tinued prosperity. This linking together of the three societies
through the medium of Horticulture has been an advantageous
arrangement, your committee believes, in every way. The three
societies have co-operated in recent years as never before and
have been of assistance to each other in various ways. The com-
bined membership of the three societies constitutes a very
powerful influence for the advancement of horticulture, as a
vocation and an avocation.
Like most publications, Horticulture is carrying fewer pages
than it normally would carry at this season of the year. With
a shrinkage in advertising receipts it has become necessary to
curtail somewhat its publication expense. This means inevitably
a somewhat smaller paper. The editor has endeavored to meet
the situation by obtaining the best possible editorial material
but by boiling it down to make it occupy as little space as pos-
sible. In this way a great number of subjects has been discussed
throughout the year. It is safe to say, that almost every plant
of importance being cultivated in the gardens of this country
today can be found mentioned in the index of Horticulture. In
the years to come, no publication will serve as a better guide
to the plants in cultivation today.
As our greatest income is derived from advertising a few
comparisons may be of interest. We find that advertising re-
ceipts, which totaled $38,579.31 in 1929, dropped to $36,401.71
in 1930, and made a still greater decline in 1931, when the total
receipts were only $33,805.73. This decline in advertising re-
ceipts is a natural result of impaired business conditions and,
as may again be pointed out, is much less in comparison than
the decline suffered by many other magazines.
Subscription receipts, on the other hand, have come to be an
increasingly important factor, amounting in 1931 to $17,538.40.
The books of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society show
that the total receipts from Horticulture for the year 1931 were
$51,807.45 while expenses totaled $51,758.13.
A marked drop in the price of paper has been taken advan-
tage of in buying paper stock for the present year. This will
help materially to reduce the cost of publication. It was also
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 89
deemed best at the beginning of the year to do away with two-
color covers as a matter of economy. The present type of cover,
which was adopted with the first number in January, seems to
be giving satisfaction and permits another saving in publica-
Horticulture has maintained its position as the leading
publication in its own particular field. Indeed, it has no com-
petitor as a horticultural news magazine going to its readers
twice a month. The committee feels that it is serving a very
useful purpose and that it continues to be one of the Society's
most valuable assets.
The occasional publication of a bulletin on a subject not
adequately covered has proved wise. These bulletins are sold
at cost and a surprisingly large number are called for. The
bulletin on Rock Gardens has sold especially well, nearly 2,000
copies having been disposed of. Dr. Kendall's bulletin on
Grapes has also sold well — a total of about 1,200 copies. About
550 copies of the bulletin on House Plants have been sold. A
new bulletin on Begonias by Mrs. H. H. Buxton of Peabody,
which was issued this Spring at 50 cents, has proved especially
useful and almost 100 copies were sold at the Spring show.
This is probably the most complete treatise on Begonias which
has been published to date in this country.
Three lectures were given by the Society in the course of
1931, one on March 9 by Clarence Elliott, a well known English
horticulturist, one on June 5 by R. M. Cooley of Silverton,
Ore., and one on August 22 by Professor A. B. Stout of the
New York Botanical Garden, Bronx Park, N. Y. It has not yet
seemed wise to resume the practice of putting on a regular
lecture course, as is done in Philadelphia and New York. The
committee prefers to be free to engage, even at short notice,
any prominent person whose ability as a lecturer is recognized
and who happens to be in this part of the country.
Howard Coonley, Chairman.
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 91
Report of the Committee on Exhibitions
It is unnecessary to tell the members of the Society that the
1932 Spring 1 flower show held in Horticultural Hall, March 9 to
March 14, was a success. The crowds which packed the hall and
made it necessary to close the doors on several occasions at-
tested that fact. The count of tickets showed a total attendance
of 41,000. The paid admissions were 23,094 and 5,903 annual
members attended on their free tickets. There was a total
income of $30,755.58 with a total profit well above $15,000.
The crowded condition of the show proved to your committee
that the time had arrived to make a definite decision as to
future Spring exhibitions. The committee believes that the
Society should plan for a comprehensive show in larger quar-
ters each year to meet the demands of the public and to keep
up with the trend of the times. The committee is firm in the
belief that the flower exhibitions of Boston should be kept in
the hands of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and that
every effort should be made on the part of the Society to meet
the wishes of exhibitors and visitors alike. The Committee on
Exhibitions has already recommended to the Trustees that the
Spring show of 1933 be held in a larger hall and the Trustees
have authorized such action. Several steps towards putting the
show on a solid business basis have been taken. This year the
Trustees were given an itemized budget which they approved.
The publicity this year was handled by the Society itself
through its Secretary, with results as good or better than when
the advertising was carried on through an expensive outside
agency. This brought about a very considerable saving.
Free tickets this year were greatly limited.
Annual members were limited to two free admissions, includ-
ing the preview. Your committee believes that the proposed
changes in the by-laws which are being voted upon at this
meeting are important and should be carried through.
The date of this year's show was synchronized so far as
possible w T ith that of the New York show, making it possible
for garden lovers to enjoy both exhibitions.
If future shows are to be held in larger quarters and are to
include trade exhibits, it will be necessary to begin the work of
preparation for each show immediately after the close of the
previous show. More or less constant work is required for a
year to put on one of these great exhibitions. In view of this
92 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
fact, the Committee on Exhibitions recommended to the
Trustees that they authorize the appointment of an assistant
to the Secretary, whose work should deal primarily with the
shows. The Trustees adopted the recommendation and author-
ized the appointment of such a man, who has been obtained in
the person of Mr. James Geehan. It may be said that prepara-
tions for next year's show have already been started.
Although our Spring shows have ranked well and often have
been better in quality than many of those held elsewhere, it is
certain that they must be even better staged and better man-
aged if they are to be permanently and increasingly successful.
Is it not possible that the flower shows of America are still in
the infant stage ? Personally, I believe this to be so and that
the future possibilities are great and surprising. A flower show
is increasingly a business as well as a pleasure proposition, and
proper organization will richly repay justified expense.
Another point to which the Committee on Exhibitions has
given much thought is the judging of the shows, this applying
to all the shows of the year. The committee believes that the
use of a suitable system of point judging is indispensable.
Exhibitors who know that their exhibits are going to be judged
by a proper scale of points will be reconciled to accept the
awards, while those setting up exhibits will be on their toes to
stage displays which will give the best possible results. Boston
should set the standard for a scientifically worked out system
Judging is very difficult and judges should really be trained
for the job. Yet by using a properly worked out and printed
procedure, the result of continued tests, flower shows can be
vastly improved, to the benefit of all concerned. Close co-opera-
tion between the Committee on Exhibitions and the Committee
on Prizes is necessary to effect these desired results.
For several years the Society has been extremely fortunate
in the weather conditions which have prevailed in Spring flower
show week, which must partly account for the continued finan-
cial success. It is hardly possible that this should always be so.
An untimely blizzard might cause great loss. Indeed, such a
disaster might be repeated successively for several seasons.
Therefore, it would seem to be the part of wisdom to keep the
flower show reserve fund, made up from flower show profits,
amply sufficient to meet such losses without otherwise drawing
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 93
on the funds of the Society. There is now a reserve fund for this
purpose amounting to $35,000. My personal view is that this
amount might well be increased to. $50,000.
The smaller shows during the past year have been reasonably
successful, although weather conditions interfered somewhat
with the June exhibitions. The plan of holding the Summer
shows in the middle of the week instead of over the week-end
was tried out with two shows and proved so successful that it
is being extended to other shows this year. Many of our mem-
bers spend their week-ends in the country or at the seashore,
or else have Summer homes, and have declined to leave on
Saturday or Sunday even for a flower exhibition. This year
the Iris show, the Peony show, the Gladiolus show, and the
children's exhibition will be held in the middle of the week. The
Dahlia exhibitors preferred to have the Dahlia show retained
for Saturday and Sunday. The Iris exhibition 1931 was at-
tended by 4,617 persons. The attendance at the Peony, Rose,
Sweet Pea and Strawberry exhibition increased to 6,375. The
Gladiolus exhibition was attended by 9,414 persons, a sur-
prisingly large number for late August. The Dahlia exhibition
was attended by 5,304 persons and was not a great success,
owing to the unfavorable season.
This year the American Iris Society has been invited to hold
its annual exhibition in connection with the Society's exhibi-
tion, the date being June 8 and 9, and this promises to be the
largest Iris show ever held in Boston. It comes at an unusually
favorable time, as the National Council of State Garden Club
Federations will be meeting in Boston on the dates of the show.
The Committee on Exhibitions wishes to acknowledge with
gratitude the sincere co-operation and help of the late Presi-
dent Albert C. Burrage and his successor, President Edwin S.
Webster. Each attended the meetings of the committee regu-
larly and much of the success which the committee has enjoyed
is due largely to their constant help and advice.
Harlan P. Kelsey, Chairman.
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 95
Report of the Committee on Prizes
The report of the Prize Committee covers exhibitions from
June 10-11, 1931, to March 10-14, 1932. The Society provided
for its customary six exhibitions and the exhibition of the
products of children's gardens.
The Iris exhibition did not offer anything very striking, nor
were the flowers shown to good advantage. It was very dis-
appointing to see them closing up during the afternoon of the
first day. Rhododendrons and Azaleas were shown in very
limited numbers. It appears to be very difficult to arrange the
dates satisfactorily to these subjects ; much depends on weather
The Peony, Rose, Sweet Pea and Strawberry exhibition is
ever an attraction to the general public and last year was no
less so than formerly. The quality was very fine but compared
with former exhibitions was very short of material.
The Gladiolus exhibition was very fine and in conjunction
with the New England Gladiolus Society, a goodly array of
fine stock was displayed. This is the most popular exhibition
of the Summer season. No outstanding new varieties were
offered for scoring.
The Dahlia display was a disappointment. For several days
previous to the show the heat was excessive ; consequently the
Dahlias suffered. The perennial displays by some of our de-
voted members were the attraction and salvation of several of
the small exhibitions during the Summer. More attractive
premiums should be provided for this class of plants, ever
increasing in popularity.
The Autumn exhibition was one of great beauty and charm,
with a large variety of entries of rare quality and excellent
Chrysanthemums and Carnations are coming to the fore
once more in our Fall shows and give us more scope for arrange-
ment. At the 1931 show Dr. W. G. Kendall was awarded the
President's Cup for a very unique arrangement of hardy
grapes, said by many to be the most complete collection ever
displayed here. Vegetables, too, at this time were very well
set up in attractive shape. We shall see in future shows more
of the artistic arrangements that can be carried out in fruit
and vegetable displays. Fruit was of excellent quality and we
96 MASSACHUSETTS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
suggest that the fruit schedule be brought up to date as to
include newer varieties of apples.
The Spring exhibition was one of the most beautiful the
Society has ever held in Horticultural Hall, with a finish and
artistic touch unexcelled. We cannot pass on without giving
special tribute to Mrs. Albert C. Burrage for her remarkable
exhibit of a tropical garden and Orchids, and we need to men-
tion the unusual gardens of Mr. Edwin S. Webster, Mrs. Homer
Gage, Mrs. C. G. Weld, Mrs. Theodore Brown and Mrs. M. M.
Curran and the Orchids of Mr. Webster, Mr. Jere Downs, Mrs.
Galen Stone, Walter H. Jewell and Thomas Roland, Inc. The
President's Cup was awarded to The Gardens in the Woods
(W. C. Curtis Ormand Hamilton) for a wild garden effect.
The Holland scenery and Tulip garden of Breck's Inc. and
the Ernest H. Wilson garden of Borowsky, too, had their
Again we feel that our judges have done their work thor-
oughly, conscientiously and without fear. They have attended
regularly and have worked in full accord with the specialists
appointed by the Prize Committee to judge in special classes.
These men deserve the Society's commendation for their
untiring efforts to interpret the schedule honestly and for the
time they sacrifice to the uplift of horticulture.
Samuel J. Goddard, Chairman.
Report on the 1931 Exhibition of the Products
of Children's Gardens
The exhibitions of the products of children's gardens have
greatly improved in the quality of the material displayed and
many favorable comments were made last year on the improved
appearance of the entire exhibit. This improvement was partly
due to the greater space allotted to both individual and group
exhibits, which permitted better arrangement on the part of
the exhibitors, and made the work of the judges less compli-
cated in handling the large number of classes to be judged.
Crowding of exhibits, particularly in some of the most popular
classes, is hard to avoid with many last minute entries.
The Society has been very fortunate in obtaining the services
of judges who have been most helpful in their sympathetic
attitude toward the problems involved:
THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1932 97
An innovation last year which seemed to work very well, was
the showing of a garden film in the lower hall while the exhibit
hall was cleared for judging. This provided entertainment and
instruction for the children during this tedious waiting period
and was a much appreciated feature of the exhibition.
Marion Roby Case, Chairman.

Membership in the Massachusetts
The constitution of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society
fixes the annual dues at $2.00. For many years it was customary
to charge an admission fee of $10.00, but by vote of the Trustees
this requirement has been set aside for the present. Until the
end of this year the only charge to new members will be $2.00,
although this sum does not cover the cost to the Society of the
publications which they will receive.
Life membership is obtained by paying the sum of $50.00,
no further charge ever being required. Annual members who
have paid the entrance fee of $10.00 in past years may become
life members by paying $40.00 additional.
All members receive an identification card, which should be
presented when books are borrowed from the Library.
Any man or woman in any part of the country who is
properly endorsed may make application for membership. New
members are needed in order to increase the influence of the
Society, and to broaden the scope of its work.
Application blanks may be obtained by writing to
Note — The Secretary is glad to have present members send him the
names of friends who might like to become enrolled.
